with the united states. as i said, in june 2005, in my addresses to the national committee on u.s.-china relations in the parking petition, there are factors which one make it possible for our two countries to form communities of interest in multiple areas and that different levels in such communities will not be easily broken a. the fact, as i mentioned, are as follows. in an era of globalization, our interest there's so deeply intertwined that we need each other. the rest of nontraditional security threats has left to a new security concept based on cooperation among major countries. the national community has come to understand that there is necessity for joint efforts to address personal hot button issues and maintain national peace and security, increasing contacts between the chinese and the american people close together. and i still believe this is true and i believe that the development has proven this fact. for example, we have seen further developments of chinese american student studying each other's countries. i would like to take this of interest in the next decade. first, i look for

've been writing a lot about u.s. wars in the area looking at iraq and iran, for years i could only say there were two countries in the middle east that had the indigenous capacity to become regional powers. meaning they had money from oil. they had size of territory and population, and they had water. only two countries had both of those. those were iran and iraq. all the other countries had one or two but didn't have all three. israel has all three except size but it was not indigenous. it was -- the power was accessed from elsewhere. and i think from what we've seen is that with the attack on iraq, the destruction of the government of iraq, the occupation of iraq, iraq is no longer a country to become a regional power. the only one left is iran. iran remains in the crosshairs. it's very much a threat to u.s. hegemony in the region because it has the potential to be an independent power. suddenly without oil for money, turkey has risen with an extraordinary policy of wanting to have no enemies among its neighbors, which is an amazing thing to think about as the basis for a foreign pol
